Campaign to stop Fly Tipping

 Do not get caught out by rogue waste disposal offers.

The SCRAP fly-tipping campaign is aimed at residents and businesses whose waste is sometimes fly-tipped by unlicensed  operators, who often offer to remove waste at a ‘bargain’ price – only to then dump it. Many of these operators advertise on social media. The campaign aims to remind people that they should only allow licensed waste carriers to take waste away for them.
